General Information

The First International Workshop for Research on HyperTransport™ is an accompanying event  of the Second Symposium of the HyperTransport™ Center of Excellence (2009). While the symposium is dedicated to invited talks from leading experts in the field of HyperTransport, high performance processors and FPGA co-processing, the workshop is a forum for peer reviewed papers.  Both events perfectly fit together and mutual exchange between the participants is guaranteed.
Suitable topics for contributions as well as more information can be found in the Call for Papers below.

Cooperation Partners

The First International Workshop for Research on HyperTransport™ is organized by the Computer Architecture Group of the University of Heidelberg, Germany. The Computer Architecture Group operates in close collaboration with AMD the HyperTransport Center of Excellence (HTCE).
The workshop is held in cooperation with the Information Technology Society (ITG) of the VDE (German Association for Electrical, Electronic &Information Technologies).


We are proud to to announce Prof. José Duato from the Universidad Politècnica de Valencia (Spain) as key note speaker for the workshop. His academic record lists more than 340 publications, including book chapters and papers in journals and conference proceedings. Additionally, he has a great expertise in interconnection networks and many of his research results have found their way into commercial products. Most prominent examples are the Cray T3E, the Cray Black Widow, the Compaq Alpha 21364 (used in the Alphaserver GS320 supercomputer), and the IBM BlueGene/L supercomputer. The IBM BlueGene/L is most prominent as it is one of the world's fastest supercomputers today.
